Taylor Swift and her red lipstick are practically inseparable. Whether dressed up for an award show or dressed down and hanging with friends, Tay’s red lip is a thing of beauty. Find out how to nail her casual red lip look, ahead!
She’s got that red lip classic thing that you like — and are literally always trying to copy. And while out in LA on April 13, Taylor Swift, 26, surprisingly paired her classic red lipstick with a very casual ensemble. The bold lip instantly elevated TSwift’s whole look, and you’re definitely going to want to copy her the next time you can’t be bothered to pull a killer outfit together or style your hair.
At a recent birthday celebration for supermodel pal Alessandra Ambrosio, Tay kept it simple, letting the birthday girl steal the sartorial spotlight. But, even in a high-waisted jeans and cropped white t-shirt combo, Taylor pulled the whole look together with a classic red lip.

Letting her red lipstick do the statement making, Tay kept the rest of her beauty look as low-key as her outfit, wearing black mascara, a hint of eyeliner and leaving her hair undone.
To copy her look, try a lip pencil like NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Mysterious. The true red shade will coat your lips in a trendy matte finish, and the pencil applicator makes on-the-go touch-ups a breeze. If you’re more of a high-shine finish fan, we love the Butter London Ladybird Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon.
When she’s not hanging out in her jeans and tee with her BFFs, Taylor rocks her red lip for slightly more major occasions like posing on the cover of Vogue magazine. For her May cover, Tay kept her red lipstick, but switched up her sandy blonde hair for a platinum color. Proof that the red lip not only works with every style, but every hair color, too.
